Property description

Relax in Islamorada, Florida Keys... 'Sport Fishing Capital of the World.' If you are looking for gold sinks, with gold fixtures, this is not the place for you!

This is a place to just 'hang out' while savoring the ocean view, breezes and sounds. If you want peaceful, secluded and close to nature - This is your home away from the world.

These are simple cottages of the 1950's with basic furnishing that include; pillow top mattresses, flat screen TV's and the 'old world' feeling of the beach cottages of 'yesterday'. We are beach front and 'ground level' and as such you will have 'visitors' peacocks, local lizards, mosquitoes, sand flies and the occasional scorpion - This is the beach life in Florida or the Caribbean. We are NOT a hermetically sealed concrete and glass condo/spa and if that is what you want - Please, go elsewhere.

If you want to experience the charm of the Florida Key's the way they were in the 40's and 50's this is the spot. You will step back in time to the natural way the Keys were, when Henry Flagler built his railroad. Two ground floor cottages sit on 2.5 acres and have magnificent views along the 235 feet of ocean front. You can relax in one of the five hammocks under the coconut trees on a beautiful white sand beach. Sip a cocktail, cool down and relax in the shallow 'drinking' pool. Enjoy the beautiful native peacocks that have lived in the area for over 60 years along with other local birds.

Private Beach, Ocean Front secluded and peaceful with 230 foot dock/pier - What more could you want?

Walk out above the ocean along a 220 feet Pier where you can dock a small boat or a yacht up to 50 Ft. Catch you dinner from your own pier and use an outdoor grill to cook outside using stainless steel cookware.

Located 1 1/2 miles from Founders Park, Islamorada with Olympic Swimming Pool, Tennis, playground, dog park and Water Sports Equipment Rental.

Manatees are regular visitors at along with tarpon, mangrove snappers, parrot fish, small rays, and other native fish species swimming in the waters off our dock. Join them for an afternoon swim or snorkel. Beautiful tropical vegetation, shore birds, and other marine life are all around you. You will cherish the memories of your stay in this lush Island Paradise.

Fishing: Backcountry for Bonefish, Tarpon, and Permit. Get the grand slam. Full access To the Altantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Offshore: Fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Dolphin, Wahoo, Kings and the reef for Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper and Cobia. There are many skilled charter captain's available or just bring your boat or that of a friends and move-in.

Boating: Bay and offshore cruising. Visit the World Famous Sandbar for relaxing and meeting new people and historical sites. Kayaking, Swimming, Diving: John Pennekamp State Park with beautiful reef diving, Hens and chickens (another well-know diving spot, you can see from our pier) Cheeca Rocks. There are rental boats available.

Owner info

About the owner: I have lived in the Keys since 1956 and this is the Island Paradise that I grew up in, and 'used to be everywhere' in the Keys before people knocked the cottages down, bulldozed the trees and vegetation to build concrete fortresses.

Why the Owner Chose Islamorada:
Purchased this property over thirty years ago (30) in order to preserve what the Keys meant to me and grateful now to be able to share a bit of my paradise with you.
